Cheddar Cheese

Cheddar Cheese is our box standard cheese, the cheese of choice for sandwiches, toasties, Mac ‘n Cheese and our favorite Sunday side dish, Cauliflower and white Sauce with copious amounts of cheddar cheese!

So, we consume a lot of cheddar cheese.  Cheddar Cheese originated from Somerset, England in the 12 th century and today it is most probably the most consumed cheese in the world. At this moment my daughter’s all time favorite after-school-treat is melted cheese. She places a slab of cheese on a plate, melts it in the microwave until bubbly and eats it with hot sauce.

Cheddar Cheese

For my Cheese Crackers my obvious choice of cheese would then be a strong, matured cheddar cheese. I love these crackers when they have that extra little bite from the strong cheese. The crackers is made from exactly the same pastry as my quiche crust.

Cheddar Cheese Crackers

makes 30


400 ml flour
250 ml strong cheese – pecorino or Parmesan
100 g soft butter
5 ml curry powder

a pinch of cayenne pepper – optional


Place all the ingredients in your food processor. Process until it comes together in a ball of dough – rest for 20min(if you can).

Preheat oven to 180 C. Take small pieces of the dough, roll it in a ball the size of a walnut. Place on a baking sheet that you have lined with baking paper. Take the back of a wooden spoon and make a little dent/hole in every ball of dough ( do not press the back of the spoon right through). This little hole is where you will place your filling once the crackers are baked.

Bake the crackers until they have a pale golden color. Remove from the oven and cool.

I served mine with Fairview Chevin and Red Onion Marmalade

Cheddar Cheese

Red Onion Marmalade


1-2 big red onions, finely sliced ( not chopped)

15 ml grated fresh ginger

2 cloves

zest of 1 lemon

200 ml red wine

80 ml sugar


Place all the ingredients in a small pot and slowly bring to the boil. Once it is boiling, reduce the heat to a slow simmer and cook until the onions are soft and the syrup is sticky. Spoon into a small glass jar and keep in the fridge until needed!

Tomorrow  morning  just after 9 o’clock, I will be making these in the RSG studios, tune in if you have a chance!

I will also in weeks to come take you into the kitchens of other bloggers, chefs and interesting South Africans this year. So buckle up, it is going to be an awesome ride. Tune in 100-104FM or listen online here!
